Daily Prompt: Melody

Today’s Prompt: Melody I’ve always loved singing. I’m not one of those people on X Factor who says they could sing before they could talk or that they were a performing baby; I have just really enjoyed singing. I know this prompt is about melody, but for my the first thing that springs to mind…

Daily Prompt: Shiver

Today’s Prompt: Shiver There’s something special about fighting off a shiver. Do I sound crazy or do you know what I mean? I don’t mean the kind of shiver where your body feels like it’s about to shatter because you are shaking to your very core! More one of those summer-turning-to-autumn nights or perhaps winter-turning-to-spring; or…

Focus.

Without focus we wouldn’t have a fulfilled life. Without focus we’re all aimlessly letting each day happen. When we lose focus, we strip ourselves of an important part of our identity. Let’s start small with this. Think about a task you’ve had to do before that requires you to really be in it. Maybe finishing…

Daily Prompt: False

Today’s Prompt: False It has been a while since I last wrote, which is a shame as I was getting into a great routine of setting aside at least 10 mins a day to post a blog. Part of the reason I lost that was because I went on a gorgeous (but kinda brief!) holiday to…

Daily Prompt: Summer

Today’s Prompt: Summer Summer. It takes on a whole different meaning once you’re into work life, doesn’t it? No longer can you dream of weeks off, of seeing friends, of little breaks away. Well, you can, but it’s a lot more restricted; to evenings, to days off. Unless you’re a teacher or something I guess –…

Daily Prompt: Perfection

Today’s prompt – Perfection I feel like there’s a lot I could say about perfection. However, nothing seems to be coming to me! I could talk about how the idea of perfection is crushing people’s sense of individuality, identity, and creativity.. but that’s as much as I have on that. I could talk about the difference…

Daily Prompt: Open

Today’s prompt: Open It’s about 10pm on a Thursday evening and I’ve just got back from pastorate. For those you who don’t know what that is, it’s basically a group of people from church meeting up in the week. Ours is particularly a young adults pastorate, made up of people in their 20s and 30s mostly….

Daily Prompt: Natural

Today’s Prompt: Natural Ahhh. When I first saw the word I read it as ‘nature’ and, to be honest, was buzzing! I flipping love nature! I’m that person who adds #natureismylovelanguage to my instagram posts – just because I’m cool of course. But seriously, I love nature. It draws me closer to God in a way…

Daily Prompt: Simplicity

Today’s prompt: Simplicity What is it to live in simplicity? Is it to ‘simply live’? Is it to withhold from yourself the luxuries that those around you have? But then, what counts as a luxury? Chocolate, clothes, vehicles, meat? I won’t lie, I don’t have much to offer today. I don’t feel hugely motivated by…

Daily Prompt: Pure

Today’s prompt: Pure I’ve had quite a few people have prophetic words for me about being pure. Basically what that means is God speaks through people to tell me something – and that’s the something God wanted to say. It’s one of those prophetic words that has out-lasted seasons, cropping up here and there every…
